lyrics

I tried to write a song for you, but you know how it goes.
I tried to keep the secret but somehow everyone knows.
I had to build a bridge to get this far,
Just to stand in sight of where you are.

Sweet time,
The ticking clock and then the sounding chime,
All the world will try to tell you,
All the world will try to sell you,
Sweet, sweet time.

Sweet time,
Every moment taken is a crime,
Everything that will obsess you,
Everyone who will possess you,
Sweet, sweet time.

I tried to write a song for you, but you know how it went.
Nothing new under the sun, all the money spent.
I had to build a bridge to get this far,
Just to stand in sight of where you are.
